South Africa set to obtain COVID-19 vaccine next month

South Africa health minister said that the nation that’s been impacted by second wave of coronavirus pandemic hopes to receive its first doses of COVID-19 vaccine next month, February 2021.

In the last few weeks, the South African Government has been ridiculed in particular by health experts for delaying the implementation of the COVID-19 inoculation programme.

“We are targeting February”, Dr Zweli Mkhize said during a news conference, adding that the South African government would have to conclude negotiations with vaccine makers, Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca before the vaccination programme would commence.

The administration plans to source for help from the private sector and from the country’s main health insurance to finance the vaccine programme.
